Workflow - Reformulating Suggesting Modifications
Are the commentators of suggested modifications allowed to suggest reformulations of the original formulations?
As the members of the community comment on suggested modifications, new formulations are sometimes offered by the commentators. These reformulations are sometimes deemed advantageous by the community and can lead to a communal consensus. The question is whether such reformulations are allowed in the scientonomic workflow and, if so, how they should be handled in practice, including how, if at all, these reformulations should be published and who should get the authorship of these reformulations.
In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Hakob Barseghyan and Jamie Shaw in 2019. The question is currently accepted as a legitimate topic for discussion by Scientonomy community. At the moment, the question has no accepted answer in Scientonomy.

|Sciento-2019-0003||Scientonomy||22 December 2019||Accept that the commentators of suggested modifications are allowed to suggest reformulations of the original formulations. Also accept that, by default, the new formulation should bear the original author’s name, unless the author decides to give credit to those who significantly contributed to the new reformulation. This should be decided collegially by the author, the commentators, and the editors on a case-by-case basis.||Open|
